How do we appreciate affect and sympathy in the dramatic text without resorting to naïve, essentialist, old-fashioned liberal-humanist, and theoretically bankrupt readings? How do we read a "playscript" with a literary intelligence and rigor that informs rather than puts itself in opposition to performance. In spite of work by Peter Holland, Martin White, and Christie Carson and Farah Karim-Cooper, and performance organizations such as Poculi Ludique, there remains a distinct separation between literary studies of early modern drama that pays lip service to "performance" and actors and theater studies practitioners who dismiss the "obstacle" of scholarly glossarial notes and work with a very different set of theoretical parameters from literary scholars.

Thunderbolts, Routers, and Ruffians: Early Modern Bullies and Bullying, Panel, NeMLA Conference, March 21-24, 2013, Boston, MA

In the last ten years bullies have gained serious attention as cyber-bullies have inflicted emotional damage so serious that some victims have resorted to suicide to escape their tormenters. Mid- to late-twentieth-century popular depictions of bullies paint them in a different light, mythologizing these figures as threatening in appearance, but ultimately harmless. These images show bullies' power as rooted in language—their toughness is constructed in tough talk. Confronting bullies is portrayed as a rite-of-passage from childhood to adulthood: once bullies' victims openly expose their tormentors' cowardice, they render them impotent.

CFP: "Making Sacrifices": Visions of Sacrifice in European Culture (University of Salzburg, Austria; July 31, 2012)

Much like Italian premier Mario Monti did at the beginning of December, politicians are increasingly calling on citizens to make sacrifices for the future of their countries. Such public invocations of sacrifice place politicians and their constituents in a state of tension at least partly because of the difficult and often contradictory connotations of sacrifice. Sacrifice, a concept of religious provenance deeply embedded in European culture, can mean to offer for destruction and to make amends, to hurt and to heal, make whole, or sacred. Such oppositions at the heart of sacrifice make it a dangerous and much-fraught concept, as well as a fruitful and powerful one in numerous spheres of culture.
